I was just at Shakerag. Thought of you. Thanks for the fabulous t-shirt. I told Lesley (a star of my workshop) to say Hi to you. Hope you are having a good summer. Let's get together sometime in 2010! SK
Hi Cindy, Such fond memories of our meeting at APSU, and again with your wonderful work in BEYOND WORDS. I'm now full-time in my studio at last and back to making books. Shakerag Workshops are going on now - Susan King and Shanna Leino are the book folk this year. I'm not attending, but am in and out, as its just down the road. If you come this way, do give me a call and we'll catch up over lunch! Best, Arlyn
The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
